new regs: province wide bait ban 2006-2007 (streams)
« on: March 08, 2005, 03:56:18 PM »

 hi
 i was just at a fishing store to pick up some hooks,when i overheard the owner and a couple other guys disscusing it.the regs had just come in,and they where pretty upset about the bait ban.and after reading about i don t like it much either,its going to hurt the sport,imho.and now the fish are dependent on license fees for their survival,its something that should be changed.at least we have a year to fight it,here s an email address    fish.web@gems9.gov.bc.ca




 doh,i didn t see chris g s thread,ignore this post.

mmmmm...I don't see how you can tie this one to the fly fishers. I am one and certainly don't support the proposed bait ban.

Mr. Pink, of course you can copy my letter & send it out to as many politicians as you can.  We need people to knock on  some dummy heads out there who are neglecting the big pictures and too chicken to confront the illegal FN poachers, but jump on us law abiding citizens with rules which are ridiculous and mean little for saving fish stocks.  If we don't exist, they could look pretty bad, because no one cares about what they say except us.  We are easy targets, thus we get all these sour deals.  We make them feel that they are still important & relevant. What a joke!

Are you sure you read printed regulation changes?  I thought Rod said it is only in the proposal stage.

Mod: Another thread with same topic was started over the weekend, let's shift the rest of the discussion over there:

Thank you.
